It seems like there’s a tarot card set for freaking everything nowadays and this long list now includes a “New Wave” tarot deck by Amanda Lee Stilwell of Last Craft Designs on Etsy . The cards feature iconic musicians including Siouxsie Sioux, Nina Hagen, Nick Cave, Genesis P-Orridge, Klaus Nomi, Grace Jones, Kate Bush, Marc Almond, Steve Strange, Peter Murphy and many more.

It appears that currently all of these nifty “New Wave” decks are sadly sold out. Perhaps if you contact Amanda on Etsy, and if there is enough interest, she’ll print up some more?

Update: you can purchase the deck here for $45.

Agent Dale Cooper as The Magician tarot card
Agent Dale Cooper as The Magician Tarot card
 
Well what do we have here? Benjamin Mackey, an artist over at Society 6 had the good sense to create a line of Tarot card-style mini-art pieces based on the 1990 cult television series, Twin Peaks.
 
The Log Lady as The High Priestess tarot card

Bob as The Devil tarot card
The demonic Bob as The Devil Tarot card
 
Leeland Palmer as the Death tarot card
 
Leland Palmer as the Death Tarot card
 
Each card measures a mere 7” by 10” and as you would expect features a different character from the series. The demonic Bob is of course, The Devil, The Magician is agent Dale Cooper (holding a piece of cherry pie), the Log Lady plays The High Priestess and the Death card is reimagined with the image of Leland Palmer. Images of the rest of the 22 cards (that will run you $15 bucks a pop) follow after the jump…

With the seal of approval from tarot maestro Alejandro Jodorowsky, comes these beautifully illustrated tarot cards by artist Michael Eaton and arranged and edited by King Khan. “The Black Power Tarot” is a version of the Tarot De Marseilles featuring black activists, public figures, comedians, musicians and important historic figures.

The cards are quite lovely if you ask me. If you look closely you’ll see Malcolm X, James Brown, Chuck Berry, Howlin’ Wolf, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and more.

There are 21 high quality prints that come in their own box. The set is £25.00 GBP (or around $39 USD).

The grooviest tarot deck ever: The Linweave Tarot, 1967

Linweave Tarot
“Jupiter” and “L’Amoureux”
 
In 1967 the Linweave Paper Co. was looking to promote its outstanding paper products, so they hit on a terrific promotional idea—publish a large-format, full-color tarot deck with art in the contemporary style executed by several top graphic artists of the moment. So they hired Ron Rae, Hy Roth, Nicolas Sidjakov, and David Mario Palladini to do it, and the results was a lively whimsical deck that looks like it came straight out of Yellow Submarine. Unfortunately, the Linweave Paper Co. apparently closed up shop in 1989. So today, that means that the tarot deck is the thing it’s more known for. A collector’s item, it now goes for about $100 used on Amazon.

The actual title of the deck is “Linweave Spells Your Fortune with a Modern Interpretation of the Medieval Tarot Pack: Presented on the Most Exciting Creative Papers in America”—just that alone is pretty awesome. I’ve selected a choice few for presentation here; you can see many more cards at these friendly websites.

Christian Montenegro’s gallery of rockers and Tarot art

Argentinean illustrator Christian Montenegro draws from his background in comics to create these rock and roll characters that combine the look and feel of Day of The Dead and Aztec imagery with Legos and Russian religious icons.
 

 
I own several Tarot card decks mainly because I like the art. So, I’m no expert regarding the accuracy of Montenegro’s interpretation of Tarot symbolism, but I sure do like the visuals.

Check out the incredible mandalas of A. T. Mann, mandala painter extraordinaire, who has assessed the world’s sacred traditions to create some of the most impressive mandala art I’ve seen. A trained architect, Mann (whose actual name is indeed Alden Taylor Mann) has been designing these works since the seventies, as well as writing on a huge panopoly of subjects, largely on astrology and tarot. You can see his works at the site linked below.
